Overview

When Patricia, “the naïve American” meets Gregori, “the gorgeous Greek”, her Sicilian-born father takes spectacularly extreme measures to try to stop her from marrying him. This is just one of many wrong reasons why Patricia is all the more determined to do so. She even moves with Gregori to Greece, where he insists he must be in order to be happy. Once there, she discovers that though she might not save her marriage, she just might save herself. With vivid descriptions of life in beautiful, modern-day Greece, this memoir is both a tasty treat and an exhilarating sail on the Hellenic seas through xenophobia, dysfunctional family units, religious ravings, obsessive protocols, political disorder, European football, and fabulous food. As the Italians say, Buon Appetito! (Good Appetite!) As the Greeks say, Kalo Taxidi! (Good Voyage!)

Editorial Reviews

Donne Tempo - Christian Toto
Harlot’s Sauce teems with terrific supporting players and the kind of crisp details which make the narrative pop off the page." ~ Christian Toto, Donne Tempo
The Greek Star - Maria Karamitsos
"Inspiring, great read" ~ Greek Star
50fabulous.com - Pattie Heisser
"Tall, dark, handsome, AND a great big Greek handful. Women will be able to relate to the challenges Patricia faced within a multi-cultural marriage and moving to a foreign country. I looked forward to reading a couple of chapters every night and didn’t want to see it end. She became the girlfriend you cheer on, cry with, and just plain enjoy. She’s brave, she’s very funny, and she’s written what is destined to become a best seller." ~ Pattie Heisser
BitchBuzz.com - Alexandra Goldstein
"Witty, human, readable" ~ Alexandra Roumbas Goldstein, www.bitchbuzz.com
